1817 at Guinness Open Gate Brewery
It was our first time in 1817. The experience was all I would expect from a restaurant with the Guinness brand. Keep up the exceptional work, because we will be back! Slaite!
The food was good, but the service was horrible. May or may not go back
The menu was great with fresh choices - it was hard to choose what to eat! The waiter was very friendly and told us about tasting the beer and helped us pick some to try!
Beautiful restaurant with great service and delicious food. The poutine is out of this world. Seriously, a plate of potatoes, meat, gravy, onions, cheese and fried eggs have no business being that delicious. Ever.
Brunch was nice. We arrived 10 minutes early for our party of four Sunday brunch reservation, but we had to wait until the exact time of our reservation to be seated even though there were plenty of open tables. Once seated, our table wasn’t in a great location despite having made a reservation well in advance. I ordered the CrabCake Benedict and it was very tasty. I asked for my poached egg to not be runny, and it was perfect. The food wasn’t as hot as it should have been, and the waitress was good but not excellent. We ordered the cinnamon rolls for the table and they were lukewarm, not fresh from the oven hot. Same for the Guinness brown bread. Several in our party agreed the dishes needed a little salt. The beer flights are a bit pricey, but the beer of course, is excellent. The portion sizes are good and the fingerling potatoes are delicious. The room is sunny and well lit and the noise level was high but tolerable. Our receipt included a 10% discount towards purchases in the gift store, but we later found out that the discount was good towards merchandise, not beer. Overall, the brunch was nice and I would indeed recommend.
Even better than we anticipated. Going back soon for sure.
Fabulous food and service!
There were not many options to choose from, and on top of that the food was tastless. We had the Salmon and the Burger and it was ridiculous. Ohh not to forget how noisy it was.
Very enjoyable. A reservation is necessary, because they are very busy. Food, service, and ambiance were very good. Their liquor license restricts them to Guiness products only, which is a little limiting at the end of a several hour visit to the brewery drinking only Guiness products, but not a big deal, since it is the best beer! I would recommend, but check on-line menu ahead of time, it is fairly pricey.
Make a reservation. The menu is great the staff were wonderful and the food was tasty.
Food was awesome. Very fast service.
Nice place, nice atmosphere. My wife and I ordered the beef stew, no beef in the stew. With that aid I plan to go back to try it again and avoid the stew!
Great food, great atmosphere, and most importantly, great beers! Highly recommend eating here. (But if you prefer traditional pub food, eat downstairs at the bar area.)
Excellent dining experience at 1817. Would highly recommend to anyone. The friendliness and quality of service from the staff was above and beyond. The quality of food for the price was outstanding. Will definitely visit again.
Special instructions were ignored that were placed with the reservation. Which was very disappointing since it was for a birthday. Other than that its a great place to be. Tour was great.
Thank you for the feedback, we're sorry to hear your birthday requests weren't fulfilled. Please email NewGuinnessBrewery@diageo.c om so we can learn more and ensure a better visit next time.
Food, was great. The experience was second to none. Definitely a spot for the whole family. The tour is incredible. One issue is we that happened was our server asked us in a polite way to leave after our check was paid for. We were there for about 15-20 after the check was paid for, talking and finishing our last pints.
Thank you for sharing this feedback, and we'll be sure to connect with our team. Please know you're always welcome and we hope to see you back soon!
Your establishment (Guinness) is well run, and the food and beer was delicious. I would recommend it to anyone lucky enough to visit the beautiful Baltimore Maryland area.
Thank you, Hamlet! We hope you'll come dine with us again next time you're in our area.
The staff was wonderful I had a party of 12 and they did everything to accommodate us. I highly recommend this place.
We're so glad you were well taken care of during your meal! Thank you for recommending our restaurant. Cheers, Angela!
This is a great restaurant, even for kids. We love the Guinness stew! Beer is pricy though.
Thank you for the review, Mike! We hope you and your family will visit us again soon.
very generic food and atmosphere. beer flights were good but felt like a sports bar or a chain restaurant. expected something slightly more upscale for guinness only restaurant in the USA.

Better than Dublin
Thank you, that's a tremendous compliment!
Great drinks and food. Was nice and quiet so conversations could be easily heard. The fish and chips and bangers and mash were delightful.
Thank you for dining with us! We hope you'll come back to check out what's new on our menu and tap list. Cheers!
Everyone was so kind. Special occasion at a special place.
Mary, thank you for visiting us! We're glad to hear you had a great experience during your special occasion.
Food was extremely pricey for mediocre fare. $16 for crab toast - 1 small slice of bread with a very mayonnaisey crab “salad” was ridiculous. Burger was huge, but not cooked as requested, and extremely greasy. Fresh blue point oysters were extremely small for the price, but more surprising was that they were not even shucked properly. They were not cut under the oyster. Don’t waste your time on this restaurant. Just go to the taproom. Beer was delicious, but expensive.
Thank you for visiting 1817, but we're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal. Please email us at NewGuinnessBrewery@diageo.c om so we can ensure a better visit next time.
Food took awhile to come out but was excellent! Our server was not great - forgot my drink when bringing out everyone else’s and then she gave us our check and disappeared. I waited 20+ minutes for her to return and then had to find another server to give the check to. We will definitely return! Great food, fun place and excellent beer!
Thank you for sharing your feedback, and we're sorry for the long wait time. Can you please send us an email including your phone number to NewGuinnessBrewery@Diageo.c om so we can ensure a better visit next time? Cheers!
I have been there several times, and this was the worse! I always ask for a specific waiter but she did not work that Sunday. Two food orders were incorrect. Coffee came but had to inquire about cream and sugar. By the time it got there coffee cold, and no one came to refill. I took a guest and was embarrassed after enjoying previous visits.

We came out to the brewery with friends for brunch! We had a fantastic time! Food and service where fantastic as well as the beer!! Would highly recommend!
Cheers, Marcy! We're so glad you and your friends had a great experience and hope you'll be back.
The waitress was excellent and the food and beer were delicious.
Thank you for visiting! We hope you'll be back to see us again soon.
The food was very good and we liked the beer tasting. The service was not great. Our waitress made us wait several times during the night. We had the Cinnamon apple bread pudding and were disappointed expecting that warm cinnamon sweat flavor but it was missing. But our entrees were excellent.
I will go back

Nice venue with really good food. Was seated quickly and the food came out pretty fast too. Definitely would recommend if you can stop by before flying out of BWI
Thank you for visiting us at 1817! Please come see us again soon.
Go early and go often! Great service and a top-quality menu. On top of that, the beer list is tough to beat. And I mean it about going early — we had lunch at 11:30am on a Saturday and the place was SRO within an hour!
We hope to see you again soon! Thank you for sharing your review.
All around a great!!
Food was fantastic, the outside area was a lot of fun.
They have a tour, restaurant 2 bars, outdoor activities. Fun place to visit.
We hope to see you again soon! Thank you for visiting and sharing this positive feedback.
The portions for the food and awesome staff made me fall in love with 1817. The music was a great mixture and definitely was a great dinner.
Adam, thank you for joining us for dinner! We hope you'll come back for our weekend brunch as well.
Not enough flavor for me. I won’t be back to eat.

We had a business meeting here and it was great. I’ve never had a problem with parking before however tonight we did have to park in the overflow lot. Food and service were awesome as usual.
Thank you for visiting us at 1817! Please come see us again soon.
Guinness stew was overcooked meat and undercooked vegetables. Pork belly was all fat.
We appreciate this feedback and will review with our team to ensure a better dining experience in the future.
